Ibn 'Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) reports that one of the daughters of Messenger of Allah ﷺ was on her death bed. Messenger of Allah ﷺ picked her up and put her before him. She passed away in his presence. Ummi Ayman (who was a slave girl of Messenger of Allah ﷺ) began wailing aloud. Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
"Are you crying before the Messenger of Allah?" (because tears were also flowing from the eyes of Messenger of Allah ﷺ). She said: 'Do I not see you cry?' Messenger of Allah ﷺ replied: "This crying is not prohibited. It is a mercy of Allah". (He softens the hearts of His servants, and creates love and mercy in them). Messenger of Allah ﷺ then said: "A Muslim is at peace at all times. even when his soul is being taken out, he is busy uttering the hamd (praises) of Allah".
حَدَّثَنَا مَحْمُودُ بْنُ غَيْلانَ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو أَحْمَدَ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، عَنْ عَطَاءِ بْنِ السَّائِبِ، عَنْ عِكْرِمَةَ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ أَخَذَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ابْنَةً لَهُ تَقْضِي فَاحْتَضَنَهَا فَوَضَعَهَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ، فَمَاتَتْ وَهِيَ بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ وَصَاحَتْ أُمُّ أَيْمَنَ، فَقَالَ يَعْنِي صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ أَتَبْكِينَ عِنْدَ رَسُولِ اللهِ‏؟‏ فَقَالَتْ‏:‏ أَلَسْتُ أَرَاكَ تَبْكِي‏؟‏ قَالَ‏:‏ إِنِّي لَسْتُ أَبْكِي، إِنَّمَا هِيَ رَحْمَةٌ، إِنَّ الْمُؤْمِنَ بِكُلِّ خَيْرٍ عَلَى كُلِّ حَالٍ، إِنَّ نَفْسَهُ تُنْزَعُ مِنْ بَيْنِ جَنْبَيْهِ، وَهُوَ يَحْمَدُ اللَّهَ تعالى ‏.‏
